I’m Val Thorvald, and I’m an assassin.

When magical bad guys hurt people, I take care of them. Permanently. 

This doesn’t make me popular with the rest of the magical community—as you can tell from the numerous break-ins and assassination attempts I’ve endured over the years. But thanks to my half-elven blood, a powerful sword named Chopper, and a telepathic tiger with an attitude, I’ve always been able to handle my problems with aplomb. Maybe some cursing and swearing, too, but definitely aplomb.

That changes when my boss is afflicted with a mysterious disease, a government agent starts investigating me, and a godforsaken dragon shows up in the middle of my latest job.

I’ve taken down vampires, zombies, and ogres, but dragons are way, way more powerful. And it doesn’t look like this one is going to like me.

Worse than that, he wants to use his magic to compel me to do his bidding, as if I’m some weak-minded minion. 

That’s not going to happen. I’d die before being some dragon’s slave. 

But if I can’t figure out a way to avoid him, save my boss, and get rid of the government spook, I’m screwed. Or dead. Or screwed and dead. And that’s never comfortable.

Pick up Sinister Magic today to see if I make it. Even if you don’t care about me, I promise the tiger is cool.

I adore this series. I love that is not a 20 something running around but a fully fledged character with history and baggage that older me can relate too.

Been looking for a new author for quite some time. Found one. The interaction between characters is refreshing, funny, intriguing and different. The many species of characters adds flavor and color. Really enjoyed the book. Narrator did an awesome job on the many accents d the characters. Already purchased next book in series.

I had a lot of fun listening to this one. The plot is filled with action and adventure as we follow val as she tries to find out how poisoned her boss and how to fix it. Val is an interesting character and I liked how realistic she felt. She's not only a badass assassin, but also struggles with mundane things like her lack of friends and asthma. There are some interesting and fun to read side characters as well. I have to say Sindari, the magical tiger was probably my favorite, he's so fun to read about and I liked the interactions between him and Val. I am not a fan of the dragon Zav yet, but I am willing to see where things go next. I liked the way the world felt fresh with how it was an urban fantasy, but with creatures you don't see as often in this genre like elves and dwarfs and many more. I am happy I listened to this one as the narrator's style really fit the book well and I liked the way she narrated this book and did the different voices. I'll be listening to the rest of the series as well!
